You can use Email Forwarders to send a copy of all email messages sent to one email account to another email account. For example. you can forward email from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com.
If you have multiple email accounts, you can also use forwarders to send all your mail to one place so you do not have to login to multiple accounts to check your mail. For example, if you have two different email accounts (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com), you could forward firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com so you do not need to check both accounts.
Note that the mail for a forwarded email address will still be delivered to that address as well. Forwarding simply sends a copy to the secondary email address.
To create a forwarder:
- Log into your hosting control panel (cPanel)
- Select the Email Forwarders option from the main screen of cPanel.
- Select the option to Add Forwarder.
- Under Address, put the name of the email address you wish to forward from in the first blank field.
For example, for firstname.lastname@example.org, put 'joe' in the first blank field.
- Under Destination, select the Forward to email address option and enter the email address you wish the email to be forwarded to in the blank field.
- Finally, select the Add Forwarder button to create the forwarder.
NOTE: If the forwarder was added successfully, the following will appear:
All email sent to email@example.com will now be redirected to firstname.lastname@example.org
(where email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will be the email addresses you have enter in the blank fields)
Make sure you have spelled both email addresses correctly when adding forwarders.
